A link when your ready please, as you will be aware by now, I do like minimal systems.


Chomping at the bit here as well.

So long as it plays nicely with our netbooks and notebooks (esp. the netbook keyboards, the assorted video cards, and the wifi nics), CUPS is stable and works with HP printers (in our case a LaserJet P1006 and a Deskjet 1000 J110, and a real bonus would be also a officejet 4215), and the browser and E-mail alternatives are diverse (is Dillo dead or too dependency-bound?).

Waiting ... patiently ... OK, maybe not real patiently ... even for something to break ... Laughing

I did a very nice trick last night, I opened two consoles, one with a silent Woof I hacked so it doesn't always ask questions (i.e my choice is hardcoded) and the other with "sleep $((60*60*3)); wmpoweroff" (which means it sleeps for 3 hours and shuts down).

The former processed all the packages and the latter is used to power off my computer in case something goes wrong and Woof shows some prompt that I forgot to automate Smile

It worked great, all the packages are processed now. At the moment I'm building a small set of packages that will be used for my next build; I also want to give it another name, I was thinking of "NextPuppy". You still don't know why, but once you'll see what runs on top of it ... you'll get it Cool

I also want to give it a new repository, because its packages are also compatible with 5.x. I think the name that makes most sense is "Packages-puppy-next-official" Laughing

Oh, and regarding artwork - at the moment everything is original. The window manager is pretty spartan and I also found a matching GTK theme and a matching terminal emulator, which pretty much provide a uniform desktop experience.

It's very lightweight, I also replaced ROX-Filer with emelFM2, for two reasons: although ROX is lighter, the use of multiple ROX windows for simple tasks wastes screen real estate and RAM, while the latter allows you to do many tasks using one file manager window. Also, I want to disable the pinboard; I can do this by modifying scripts, but if you only disable the code that starts it (~/.xinitrc), the desktop icon switcher will start it once you change the icon theme and that's bad. I can't fix all applications that start the pinboard, because that's not future-proof.

There are many rough edges, but this is the first build ... so I'm still allowed to do those wild experiments Laughing

Two missing libraries and broken Xorg_High, but RAM usage was 39 MB. Shocked

Doing another build with today's Woof, this time these issues will be fixed and Dash will be the default shell, if it works well enough. Should be another RAM saver.

I might upload this one if it's any good Smile

EDIT: uploaded the packages, the sources and the Woof files to here. Wink

specs.tar.xz, what is the way to unpack these tar.xz files. Normal xarchiver does not uncrompress, I would like to have right click for it also but I am at loss how to handle them. There isnt mime type for these tar.xz files. I wonder if they are in the /usr/share/mime/globs file for mime handling.

Uploaded the build scripts I used and Squashfs 4.2. Now the new repo has enough packages to get the ball rolling Smile

2createpackage is running ... I expect NeXTPuppy 5.0.0 alpha 1 to arrive within 2 hours Cool

Hi Igu... I see you are using dash, as the default shell, 'if it works well'.. I'm sure it will Smile

https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DashAsBinSh - you probably seen it

checkbashisms script attached here - might be useful for you

Yesterday, I used a combination of both of the above to make the 'init' script in initrd.gz use ash, instead of bash.
It booted fine, and was definitely a bit quicker.

The Dash experiment failed hard here - Woof couldn't run because of it. I decided to keep Dash but Bash is still the default shell.

Is this what we should wait to test?

Thank you don570. I have already applied your right click to Dpup Exprimo. Do you have any idea how to create script to have right click extract-tar-xz and have entry in /usr/local/apps. Mime type was there already. OpenWith folder needs to created also.

Uploading my new dpup puplet, I'll put it in the derivatives section. I guess I'm gonna work on it now and leave the "desktop" flavor of dpup to pemasu.

We share many bug fixes, so I think it's a good idea Smile

Iguleder. Dpup cross-breeding has been nice and many new innovations have been applied due to co-existence of same dpup core. And hopping between different builds ensures that it does not start to feel too dull.

I believe xarchive can handle xz
I'll look into it.

___________________________-

I learned the hard way not to edit scripts with
Abiword. Embarassed The curly quotes problem

Luckily I recognized what was happening.

I'll remove Abiword from the right click option
of scripts
